Commanding spectacular views from its clifftop location and settled in 25 acres of rich parkland, Cliff House provides a unique blend of privacy and tranquility. A retreat for all seasons, Cliff House is available for you to enjoy all year round. Relax in the warmth and glow of the open fire during winter or open the house to the cooling sea breeze during summer's balmy heat.

At Cliff House, you can do as much or as little as you like to pass your time. Idle away a pleasant evening with friends and a glass of wine on the petanque court. 

Take a walk down the private stepway to the secluded cove for a spot of fishing or to explore the rock pools. 

Relax on the sun-drenched decks and watch the ocean's changing vista. Meander along the paths and tracks, fly a kite on the clifftop, fish a little, make Pina Coladas and watch the sun go down.

The 25 acres surrounding Cliff House, once part of a larger farm, is being replanted to create a unique indigenous parkland. 

An onsite nursery grows locally sourced seed for a large variety of native plants and each year approximately 5000 new seedlings are added to the land. Ponds, wetlands and the regenerating plantlife are a haven for native birds. 

Paths and tracks meander through the landscape providing numerous vantage points to enjoy the spectacular scenery and observe the planting process first hand.

Cliff House has three generous living areas, dining area, fully equipped kitchen, laundry and drying area. There are four spacious bedrooms, the master bedroom with super-king bed and ensuite bathroom, a second principle bedroom with ensuite, a guestroom with a queen-size bed and a second guestroom with twin singles and adjacent bathroom. If you're catering for a crowd a comfortable double sofa bed provides for 2 more guests.

Cliff House incorporates a full entertainment system: 42 inch plasma screen, Sky TV, DVD/video/book library, Play Station games and high speed wireless.
